Call For Papers

MTSR is an annual international inter-disciplinary conference, which brings together academics, researchers and practitioners in the specialized fields of metadata, ontologies and semantics research. The conference provides an opportunity for participants to share knowledge and novel approaches in the implementation of semantic technologies across diverse types of information environments and applications. These include Open Access Repositories and Digital Libraries, Cultural Informatics, Digital Humanities, E-learning applications, Search Engine Optimization and Information Retrieval, Research Information Systems and Infrastructures, e-Science and e-Social Science applications, Agriculture, Food and Environment, Bio-Health & Medical Information Systems.


Contributions are welcome on Metadata in general, Ontologies, Semantic Web, Linked Data, Automatic Metadata Generation, Open-Access Repositories, Digital Libraries, Knowledge Management, Software Engineering, Cultural Informatics, Digital Humanities, E-learning applications, Information Retrieval, e-Science and e-Social Science applications, Agriculture, Food and Environment, Bio-Health and Medical Information Systems, including but not limited to:
